The Whitfield-Murray Historical Society welcomes school groups to visit our historic sites, Field trips are valuable opportunities for young people to learn about the rich heritage of our area, but to protect that very heritage we ask that all school groups adhere to the following guidelines:
Reservations for school tours must be made at least two weeks in advance by contacting the Crown Gardens & Archives, headquarters for the Whitfield-Murray Historical Soceity, at 706 278-0217, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
School tours can be geared to students in first grade and above.Teachers are asked to have specific objectives for the tours and share those with the guides so they can accommodate the students.
All students must be closely supervised by responsible adult chaperones.Minimum requirements for adult supervision are one adult for every 10 students in grades one through three, one adult for every 15 students in grades four through six, one adult for every 20 students in grades seven and eight, and one adult for every 25 students for high school groups.
Students should be given instructions on proper behavior as well as respect for the buildings and the items on display.Many things are irreplaceable and we want to preserve them for future generations to enjoy.
Whitfield-Murray Historical Society Museums
are open every Friday for tours.
Donations are accepted for each museum.
The Hamilton House is open for tours on request only.
Call Tina at 706-278-0217 to schedule a tour of the Hamilton House.
